Presse - Tommy Steele Doomsday Rock - The Brits Are Rocking, Vol.1 - Vive Le Rock issue #65

TOMMY STEELE DOOMSDAY ROCK (Bear Family) Early rockin' tracks. 7/10 This looks to be the first in a series subtitled 'The Brits Are Rockin' Vol I'. Tommy Steele is a fitting artist to kick off the series, he was a true UK original with the first track here 'Rock Around The Town' dating from 1956 from which the title track also dates. Steele's style was a mixture of Elvis Presley but musically more akin to Bill Haley's Comets still hugely popular at the time. His early recording backing band were seasoned jazz musicians which also lent to the latter. Prolific doesn't doesn't cut it when it comes to describing the speed at which Decca recorded and churned out his records. Quite telling that the first 'Tommy Steele Story' EP was out in 1957. Of the 34 tracks included most were recorded in that rockin' 56/57 period, when Tommy Steele was the top of the pile of UK rock 'n' roll, here's why. Simon Nott
